So we just finished installing a Street Edge coilover set and immediately got front end spring chatter. Very noticeable when turning and during compression and rebound. Took everything apart and noticed it was missing the all-so-important washers between the top spring perch and top hat. Without them the bearing in the top hat wasn't making contact with the upper perch causing the spring to bind and turn every time the wheel was turned. Now with everything in place the top hat turns freely on the coilover when fully assembled and no more noise. We had the new kid working on this, just goes to show you that if you want it done right you gotta do it yourself. Hope that helps you guys with the spring noise.
